#France (or rather #Hollande ?) in #Mali, Africa, now. So What, Camel ?

As the French, especially socialist politicians, are well known for misbehaving wherever, with whomever, from snails to rabbits, via oysters and cleaning ladies, and although the French socialists (socialites ?) swear their law for gay mariage is no open door for other things the catholics don’t recommend, the camel that was given to François Hollande in Tombouctou seem to dislike the idea, that he (she ?) may have to move to Paris and live among the French socialites (socialists ?).

If you can’t enjoy eating it (the French way, or talk, or socialist, or socialite), avoid ,or at least don’t swallow it (the French talk, or way, or socialite, or socialist) … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxeKfutSzO0

Ps : Byzeway, Beckham will not fight in French speaking Mali, Africa, but play in  mainland French speaking football desert Paris, Qatar France, now that he is 37 years old. Five months only, because otherwise, he might have to pay insane taxes in France. And with no salary, because one never knows with the insane French, they might invent a tax for foreign people living abroad but spending their money in Paris. And without spouse, because in insane France, “c’est le bordel”, even more than usually, nowadays.

Is #France already at war again ? In #African Sahara again ?

hollande_guerre_liberation

Some French planes seem to be bombing some rebels in Sahara on behalf of the government of Mali, with the strong moral support of the United Nations, with African, Maghreb and other international partners. Is France art war in Western Africa ?

A French boat seem to be cruising somewhere close to Somalia and France is said to have lost some soldiers and a hostage there is a rescue operation that failed. Would France be fighting something or someone in non French speaking Eastern Africa ?

On the other hand, some say, that due to high housings costs in Paris and low availability of free land in the countryside (plus snow at night on French airports), in view of diplomatic issues in Syria and losses in translation in Somalia, the French may have decided to resettle their refugees from Afghanistan in friendly Northern Mali, in the middle of nowhere in the deserts of Africa, where the climate is better in winter, and where there is a lot of hot sand and available housing, now that the terrorists have killed and expelled most regular inhabitants over the last 9 months of “open bar” or so in what could have been Azawad, if not simply Mali, but has tuned into something else. Could a recent French political initiative make technical sense, for a change ?

But there it cannot be as simple as that … with France, there must be something more (or less) glamorous.

Mali_Le_point_sur_l_intervention-a3ea4510f0404adafa6a6ea92603aa86

Something more … French

mali-pour-francois-hollande_5ie3h_2gba6r

But what else ?

France Mali Fighting

Some Franco-French post-Françafrican Francofolies ? A new “certaine idée de la France en Afrique” ?

Or just some Franco-French Gauloiseries ? (Some say, the second biggest Malian town, after Bamako, is in Paris suburbs)

Anyway, the entrepreneurs who have not left the country over the last decades seem afraid. Is France struggling against French creators and businesspeople with a view to attract foreign investors ? Is France at war against French success in France ?

The few artists and other French sportspeople not yet living in America because of the climate, Switzerland for the better snow, London due to the great weather, china for the better football or Belgium fort the better beer, and not stuck to France for subventions or health care are escaping to Russia or looking for Qatari free zones in Paris, now. Is France at war against French culture and sport ?

Maybe the government’s spokeperson could tell why there were no fireworks in, Paris for New Year if France is at war, what war, where war, why war, and against what or whom ?
